Instron (Norwood, Mass.) has developed new line of universal materials testing equipment. The 5900 Series comes in three models. The first is designed for low-force testing up to 2 kN and features a single column tabletop system with a small footprint for lab use. The dual-column tabletop systems are ideal for mid-range testing with capacities up to 50 kN. The dual-column floor model systems are for high-capacity testing up to 600 kN and feature heavy-duty frames for demanding applications including testing of high-strength metals and alloys, advanced composites, aerospace and automotive structures, and more. The 5900 Series load frames are built with ball screws, precision guidance columns, and dual-belt drive systems. It operates using Bluehill 2 software and a control panel that contains customizable soft keys and live displays that monitor real-time data from any two channels (e.g. load, extension, tensile stress).
